Heritage House family (CONTINUED ON PAGE 9) By Judith Franklin News Editor Eight American Jewish Community leaders accompanied Vice President George Bush on the Israel leg of his recent trip to the Middle East. Local resident Gordon Zacks, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the R. G. Barry Corp., was among them. Zacks, a personal friend as well as political supporter of the vice president, was also a member of the pre-ad- vance planning team for the trip. "Because of the relationship I have with the vice president and the extensive experience I've had in the Middle East, he (Bush) asked me to help prepare for his trip," Zacks explained. As part of the pre-advance team,| he traveled to Israel, Jordan and Egypt to help determine the most appropriate things for Bush to see and do while there. Then ^when^the f trip firmed up, the vice president invited me and seven other supporters and friends in the Jewish community to accompany him on the Israel part of the trip — at our own expense," Zacks noted. Zacks' relationship with Bush began in 1979, when he served as deputy national chairman and vice president of national finance in Bush's bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Gordon Zacks Zacks' involvement in politics began even before that, however. He relates that on Yom Kippur, 1973, while raising funds for Israel on the bimah of his synagogue, he realized that far more than money at that moment, Jsrael, ^mbroUed in the Y&m Kippiir War, ne.eded "planes, ammunition, tanks ..: and the power was in the political arena, in Washington." That's when he decided to redirect his energies from philanthropy to politics, he said.

Demonstrations of the ; 20 station/32 exercise course will be given.'The course is, 'designed to benefit people of all ages, from preschoolers to senior adults. "We are^pleased with our evolving relationship with Saint Anthony Medical Center," says Dr. Al Tyroler, president of the Jewish Center. "It has helped move our existing Health and Physical Education program through a major shift toward a more comprehensive wellness approach." The joint venture will include a broad health education component, a fitness program designed to cater to individual needs and a computer-monitored fitness testing component. The health education component of the program, the Medical Center will provide the Jewish Center with a full- time health educator, Anne Stermock, who will design agency-wide programs ranging from prenatal health education to preschool and adolescent programs and senior adult health education > presentations. '"''In'the' comprehensive fit ness and fitness testing program, the Medical Center will provide an exercise physiologist who will develop individualized fitness programs, '■ group exercise opportunities, aerobic' classes and other related activities.

A computer monitoring system will follow each individual plan, checking health habits, diet and exercise.

In addition, it "reaffirmed in a strong way the commitment of the United States to maintaining the military edge of Israel over its Arab foes. It would send a , strong signal to Syria — make no mistake about the strength of the U.S. commitment to Israel," he said. Zacks feels the trip was "clearly successful." He, pointed out that: • There was evidence of movement on the part of Egypt and Israel relative to Taba, which has been , a sticking point for the past six months. The vice president made it clear that the U.S. will not consider favorable changes in policy toward Egypt until a normalization in its relations with Israel. -' is achieved. ' ? " ."• The vice president indicated that the U.S. government would seriously consider Israel's request for auxiliary member status in NATO. This would allow Israel, like other auxiliary members, Australia and New < Zealand, to purchase military equipment at a discount and to participate in joint research and development projects with NATO countries. • While the vice president was in Israel and as a consequence of his being there, the last obstacles to the installation of a Voice of America relay transmitter station in Is^ rael were overcome. Now VOA will be beamed from Israel to countries in the Eastern Bloc and the USSR. • A tourism treaty between Israel and the United States was ini- .. tialed and is ready to be signed. Furthermore, Zacks felt that Bush was favorably impressed with Israel. The vice president' drew many parallels between America and (CONTINUED ON PAGE 4) Early Deadly Notice Deadline for SEPT. 4 issue NOON, THURSDAY, AUG. 28 Chronicle office closed Monday, Sept. 1 in observance of Labor Day -J--J.
